Giants power past visiting Cubs

SAN FRANCISCO — Rookie Kelby Tomlinson wasn’t sure how to react when his grand slam was replayed on the stadium video board. Veteran Marlon Byrd reminded him to smile and take in the moment. Tomlinson hit a slam for his first career home run and Byrd added a three-run shot, leading Madison Bumgarner and the […]

Aggies release men’s hoops schedule

Three games against NCAA Tournament teams, a double dose of Causeway Classics and 15 exciting home contests highlight the 2015-16 UC Davis men’s basketball schedule, announced Thursday by head coach Jim Les. It’s a challenging slate for the defending Big West Conference regular-season champion Aggies, who made the NIT, the program’s first trip to the […]

Sports briefs: Blue Devils see encouraging signs on the tennis court

With the Davis High girls tennis team eyeing a spot in the Sac-Joaquin Section postseason, coach Sally Hosley likes to get her squad as much court time against top competition as possible. So on Thursday — even though the two teams will meet in a regular-season match next week — the Blue Devils hosted powerful […]

Republic notebook: Assistant Malenab is Sacramento’s unsung hero

Ten days ago, when Sacramento Republic FC announced new job titles for head coach and now technical director Paul Buckle as well as director of football Graham Smith, the addition of the duty of “video analyst” to assistant coach Chris Malenab’s job description didn’t make the headlines. But in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Real Monarchs SLC, […]

There’s gratitude for you

Dear Annie: My parents own a good amount of land in their native country. When I was growing up, they paid for my tuition but were not very supportive emotionally. I sponsored them to come to the U.S., and because they didn’t speak English (and still don’t), I helped them find jobs. The problem is, […]

It’s more of an un-vitation

Dear Annie: I am a 27-year-old woman and have been verbally invited to a few weddings this year. For one, we were told to “save the date” a year in advance. I never received an actual invitation and their wedding was last weekend. The pictures are popping up on Facebook. The second wedding, the bride […]

Moved into a rough situation

Dear Annie: My husband, “Ben,” and I each lost a spouse and then found each other. We live in the same house with one of his daughters and a granddaughter. Ben is quite attached to this house. The two daughters are the owners now, but their father bought it originally and has always maintained it. […]

Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind

Dear Annie: My heart is breaking for my sister. She has been married to the same man for more than 30 years and he has never been kind or respectful toward her. They have two married sons and a grandchild with health problems. My sister loves that grandchild more than life itself, but she rarely […]

Going to the dogs

Dear Annie: Six years ago, our daughter left her dog with us. We’ve grown to love “Lassie” and would never give her back now. But she wears down the furniture, scratches the floors and leaves lots of hair all over. Last year, we were blessed with grandkids, so now our living room is gated off […]

Just us in Davis: The Cannery — eat your heart out, Davis

The imagery is literally mouth-watering. Ripe tomatoes of many colors spill off the page and are reflected in the colors and names of the neighborhood (Heirloom, Persimmon, Sage…) “Good Living Grows Naturally Here,” reads the motto for The Cannery, “California’s first farm to table home community in the heart of Davis.” The Cannery clearly exemplifies […]

What it’s like as a ‘girl’ in the lab

By Sarah Clatterbuck Soper It’s 7 p.m. on a Friday night, and I’m still in the lab. Earlier in the day, as I was looking through old data, I unexpectedly found the answer to a question that I’d been trying to address for a year. It was one of those rare “eureka” moments in science. […]

Long-distance interference

Dear Annie: I am a 29-year-old married woman with a 14-month-old son. My husband and I live one hour away from his father and stepmother, “Gladys,” and two hours away from my parents. We all get along great. When I decided to go back to work, both my mother and Gladys volunteered to watch my […]

She’s the only one working on it

Dear Annie: I have been married for more than 25 years to a highly respected, professional man. He has always worked hard, rarely taking time off. My efforts to get him to vacation have not been successful. Although he no longer enjoys his work, he continues these habits to support the family. Our children are […]

Devastated by diagnosis

Dear Annie: My nephew recently found out that he has genital herpes. He is a fine young man and had been dating the girl for a while. When they parted ways, neither of them knew she had a sexually transmitted disease. Since finding this out, my nephew has become so depressed. He is convinced that […]
